How Canada's top architects designed a Pan Am district from scratch

from The Globe and Mail

Take a crowd of Canada's top architects, put them in a room and ask them to design a dense city neighbourhood — working with a 1,000-page book of rules and requirements. This was how the Canary District in Toronto, which will be the athletes’ village for the Pan Am/Parapan Am Games this summer, was created. Surprisingly, this city-by-committee is coming out well. The $514 million, 14-hectare complex is walkable, sustainable, contemporary but respectful of history, and economically diverse. It will efficiently house 10,000 people for Pan Am and then serve different users, in about 1,650 units, over the long term. more
